About This Show
Broken English is a mobile podcast hosted by me, Andrew Mahar in and around Chicago, Illinois.
This first season is a mixture of interviews from people who have immigrated to the U.S. ranging from Mexico to South Africa to Turkey to Bolivia. With the Trump administration creating such a negative connotation around the word “Immigrant” now more than ever, immigrants need a voice to share their side of the story. Broken English is here to be that voice.

This is the 10th and final episode of Season 1 and I've got Hongming Liu from China on the show! This episode is all over the place and we cover everything from old Chinese stories to child labor factories and philosophy. He's a brilliant man who came to Chicago on a student visa and got his PhD and JD at DePaul University. He now works as a patten attorney and finds time to do stand up comedy as a hobby.
